Not in the relationship sense, but in the workout sense.
Use them. Use them to hell and back.
Use them to be your pace setter, use them to push you harder, to lift heavier, and to learn from.
I’m not saying to compare yourself to them. At the end of the day it is still you vs you.
But in the middle, when you are hurting? When you are seeing stars and on the verge of giving up? Hell yes. Use them to nudge you forward, to get you through and to help you grow.
That’s what the community is about after all; helping each other through the pain.
